The food, service and atmosphere was great! There was a baby crying but that can't be helped. Food was on time with no wait, and it was stunning, I can't wait to come back again!!

“Difficult to review”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2013 via mobile

Nearly excellent, but....
Food is very good. Atmosphere is reasonably good although perhaps a little bit too "cool". Certainly not inexpensive for what you get and the service is just a little bit "distant". Made you feel like you weren't really that important to them.
Would you rush back? Perhaps not. Certainly not bad, but it will be interesting to see if it's still there in it's current form 12-24 months from now, when the novelty has worn off. My guess is not, if it doesn't adapt a bit.
I think it just needs to be a bit more genuinely welcoming. Feels like if you went there for years you'd never get any sense of recognition. Restaurants need that, especially in this economic climate.
This is certainly not a bad dining experience, but for me there are currently better options. Hopefully Zenxi will think about what they are trying to achieve and get better. It's not the food that needs improving, it's the overall customer experience.
